An enjoyable science read that explores 13 problems that have evaded and baffled the minds of science. Some of the areas addressed are space, nuclear energy, the origin of life, life in space, sex, death, free while and more. I enjoyed chapters like: 'The Missing Universe: We can only account for 4 percent of the cosmos', 'Cold Fusion: Nuclear energy without the drama', 'Life: Are you more than just a bag of chemicals?', ' Death: Evolution's problem with self-destruction' and ' Free Will: Your decisions are not your own'. The book was easy to understand to those within background knowledge in the topic and well laid out where the topics flowed together rather than being 13 separate ideas.

Motivations to Read
